Bold theater for curious minds
This Beast is bred for no-holds-barred creative rampage. We blend theater, movement, and object into work that oozes with irreverent humor, poignant drama, sensuality, athletic feats, strange beauty, and naked reality. It's hard to describe, so we made up a name for it: dance circus.
Gastrocentric events for merrymakers
We think a good production begins before you walk in the door and ends long after you leave. Our shows offer a night out on the town where you can order a drink at the onstage bar and meet new folks. Food and drink events take place at the theater and off-site locations and usually involve stage performances, wandering acts, and installations.
The Stage Ratz learning program readies the next generation to become imaginative citizens who question the status quo and poke fun at our ancient ways.
Support a favorite artistic habit
We work hard for the money. Yet our outspoken art can only exist with your generosity. Make sure its alternative voice continues to be available for your enjoyment and for the benefit of others in your community.
The Beast is fueled by a core group of performers and designers. Supercool guests join from time to time. We work swiftly, shun hierarchy, adore camaraderie, and adhere to a strict no assholes rule.
